Reusable Silicone Face Mask Kit (5 Filters)
This Reuseable breathable face mask  is made from 100% platinum-cured, pharmaceutical grade FDA/LFGB silicone; BPA & BPS free.
With a Single Use Filter installed, this reuseable mask will help fight the spread of COVID-19. 
It blocks 99.7% of particulate at 3.0 µm (microns) - 
the specific testing language is “99.7 BFE,” which stands for Bacteria Filtration Efficiency.
^ Mask dimensions:
6 inches Wide x 4.5 inches High x 0.04 inches Deep (15.4cm L x 11.4cm H x 0.1cm D)
^ Reuse your mask, and replace the filter often.
Our mask kits come with 5 filters, and we offer replacement filters in Pack)s of 10. We recommend using a certified filter for optimum protection.
^ Always use a filter
^ Cleaning Your Mask
The silicone mask can be sterilized and sanitized in the dishwasher, microwave (15 seconds on High Setting), oven (5 minutes at 300°), autoclave, or by
hand washing vigorously with soap and hot water.
Each kit includes 5 filters to start. Always use your mask with a filter, and dispose of the filter after use. 

Don't forget to PreOrder additional refill Filter 10-Pack)s
 when you PreOrder your Mask so you don’t run out!
^ Wearing Your Mask-Keep it tight
Your mask should be worn snug across your face and secured behind your ears or head. Be thoughtful about how you place the filter inside the mask; it should
cover the air holes and avoid creating gaps where “free air” can flow. Our reuseable silicone masks are not medical devices and shouldn’t replace N95,
surgical, or procedural masks, but they do stand proud as a much-needed option for the general public in the race to protect our communities from the spread
of COVID-19. This mask falls into the category of general, non-medical face masks. In March 2020, the FDA issued guidance to provide a policy to help expand
the availability of general use face masks for the general public and particulate filtering facepiece respirators for health care professionals during
the COVID-19 pandemic. 

**** Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How do I use the mask?
A. Follow these simple steps to use your mask:
Insert a filter into the inside of your mask.
2. Pull the mask straps around your ears. If the mask fits too loosely, use the included clip to secure the mask behind your head instead.
3. A tight fit is a good fit. Check for excess airflow and tighten the mask as needed.
4. Replace the filter after each use; discard soiled filters.

Q. Do I need to use a filter with this mask?
A. Definitely yes. Large holes in the silicone allow for easy breathing… and also let the bad stuff in. Using a filter is vital to the mask’s effectiveness.
Each kit includes 5 for starters, and you can get 10-Pack) refills from us.

Q. What are the specifications of the filters being used?
A. This is not a medical device; it is a general-purpose mask kit. The general-purpose filters are tested to block 99.7% of particulate at 3.0 µm (microns)
- the specific testing language is “99.7 BFE,” which stands for Bacteria Filtration Efficiency. All of that effectiveness of course depends on a good fit,
which is why we are including a clip to fit the mask behind your head if the fit of the mask behind your ears isn’t enough. The filters are tested to 99.7%
particle filtration effectiveness, and each batch has to be tested to meet that standard before it is cleared for Pack)aging.

Q. How do I sanitize my mask, and how often should I do that?
A. We recommend sanitizing the silicone mask after public exposure, or whenever you take it off.
First, discard that dirty filter and wash your hands really well!
You can clean it in a number of ways:
• Dishwasher: Wash on medium heat with mild detergent.
• Microwave: Microwave for 30 seconds in a bowl of water.
• Hand wash: Scrub with hot, soapy water for at least 20 seconds.
• Oven: Place the mask in an oven-safe dish. Bake at 300°F (150°C) for 5 minutes.
• Autoclave: Where available, sterilize using an autoclave.
Dry well before inserting a new filter.

Q. How many times can I use a filter?
A. Use each filter once, and discard when soiled. The filter is good for a full day under normal conditions (e.g. not in a smoke storm), but use your best
judgment; if you think you’ve been exposed, be conservative and discard the filter. If you’ve taken a morning walk down a quiet street, you can probably
use it again to go to the grocery store later.

Q. What can I use if I run out of the filters? Can I make my own filters?
A. In moments like this, anything is better than nothing. We recommend using our  certified Single Use Filters wherever possible, but you can make your own filter out of
HEPA filters, vacuum cleaner bags, or air purifier/conditioner filters. If you choose to use a HEPA bag to cut your own filter, please Google the latest
research as some content is coming out that points to the possibility inhaling of harmful particles from HEPA bags. We're not doctors and we're just following
what's being recommended. Two weeks ago, common thought was that HEPA was a good material for homemade filters. Now that we're in mid April, new info is
coming out that's questioning that popular wisdom. Please use your best judgment and educate yourself. What we can promise is that the Single Use Filters
we provide are lab-tested and certified to be 99.7% BFE  effective. Beyond that, we're just offering helpful information with no claims to efficacy or implied expertise.

Q. When/where should I wear this mask?
A. For the duration of the pandemic, you should endeavor to wear a mask when you’re outside, in a public place, or exposed to others. The CDC’s new guidance
encourages individuals to wear masks or homemade face coverings in public settings like grocery stores; we’re all adapting to this as a society. Importantly,
Read CDC Guidelines Here
wearing a mask can prevent you from unknowingly spreading disease in public if you are infected but asymptomatic.

Q. Is this mask one size fits all?
A. The Reuseable Sillicone Mask is One size fits most, with the straps behind your ears. We are also including a small plastic clip in the Pack)age so you can hook it behind your head for
a tighter fit if you have a smaller head.

Q. Will this mask fit kids?
A. Using a clip (included in the kit), our founder Sam has been able to comfortably fit these on her kiddos—ages 3, 4, and 7. Do what feels right for your
family and little ones. We’re working on a kids size too, but it might not be here until later in the spring. If you can encourage your children to wear
a mask now, you should! This mask will be loose on them, but it will stay on and it’s better than nothing.

Q. When will my mask be shipped?
A. We’re aiming to begin shipping customer PreOrders in 2 weeks, targeting the end of April and we are moving as quickly as we can to manufacture, test, Pack)age, and deliver every single PreOrder. Your patience is saving lives. Thank you for helping us make this possible.
Q. Can these be returned? 
A. These masks are personal use items and cannot be refunded, returned, or exchanged for any reason due to Health Regulations. Thanks for understanding!

** Note: These masks are not medical devices and are not a replacement for surgical or procedural masks.
** Please note: In response to extreme demand, quantities are limited! We’re aiming to begin shipping PreOrders in late April, and we are moving as quickly as
